Adding a pop of color and a humorous outlook on dreary days, London Undercover keeps carriers dry with their well-designed umbrellas, boasting English-inspired graphics on sustainable fabrics.

The After Dark collection (shown at top) speaks to the constant need of a good umbrella at any given moment, with its tiny size and expandable construction, while the Slim Walker and Classic collections more obviously nod to quintessential British culture with images of fish and chips or an English breakfast printed on the interior (shown above).

Already collaborating with Transport for London on the Commuter umbrella (above right)—a navy pinstripe exterior with the 1970s seat pattern from the District and Circle Line tube trains and buses on the interior—London Undercover will add a few more collaborations with consummate British brands in 2010, while also expanding beyond umbrellas.

Spanning £20-80, London Undercover umbrellas sell online or at Liberty, Selfridges or Fortnum & Mason.
